Children and Young People’s Counselling

Welcome to Children and Young People’s counselling at the Living Well Service, providing support to children and young people, when they need it most.

Our small team of dedicated, professional and empathic counsellors and volunteers are here to provide support to children and young people aged 4 -18 years old, who live in the West Cheshire area. This support is available to children and young people who are bereaved and to those that have a family member with a life limiting diagnosis.

Watch this short video of our Senior Counsellor Kerry to tell you more about the service.
